Inmigration and Visa

If you are a permanent resident of the United States but have a passport from another country (see Types of visas & countries to which they apply) you may require a stamped visa to travel to Panama. Without a permanent residence card, the requirements will be the same as the authorized visa. The stamped Visa takes approximately 2 to 3 working days to be processed by the Consular Office.

Este trámite se realiza en conjunto con la Dirección de Migración y Naturalización del Ministerio de Gobierno y Justicia, en los casos en que personas extranjeras lleguen a nuestro país a participar en algún evento artístico cultural en el cual la Institución tiene participación en calidad de organizador o auspiciador del evento.

Visas and tourist cards are both good for 90 days. To extend your stay, you’ll have to go to an office of Migración y Naturalización in Panama City, David or Chitré. You must bring your passport and photocopies of the page with your personal information and of the stamp of your most recent entry to Panama.
